Description

From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. Lucy also stars Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman.

    Trailer was intriguing, however the movie did not deliver. Rather a lot of tripe and evolutionist theorising nonsense. Don't waste your money or time, which would be better spent reading something worthwhile or calling a loved one for a chat.

    Starts well and rapidly goes down hill. The plot explodes in ridiculous fashion way too early and and then has nowhere to go. This film reminds me of a pissing contest for 14 year olds with a hard on Scarlet. You'll kick yourself if you actually spend any money to see this dreadful movie. Its like a blunt pencil... totally pointless. Whatever happened to Luc Besson? The director of Subway, Nikita and Leon? Can't be the same guy. Is this what happens when you have to pay the bills to play with the big boys. Some restraint would have gone a loooong way.

    Loved the idea of science fiction movie of Luc Besson, loved the approach to support the potential of human beings. Amazed by film mindset of Lucy by Scarlett and her five star performance in the film. Morgan was brilliant. Looking forward for similar true action powerful movies by Luc Besson.

    And excellent film and really explores some deep philosophy which I personally think is absolutely believable. It's pleasing to see how the film crosses two poles from "hated" at 1 star, to "loved" at 5 stars. I think that's the sign of something powerful and brave, attempting to challenge society

    I accidentally almost rented this film and so cancelled before confirming and my money has been taken anyway. Absolutely ridiculous.
  • Two Stars

    I give this movie 2 stars - 1 star for original storyline & 2nd star for keeping my attention. It starts off well enough, realistic & believable however it becomes entirely unbelievable once Lucy goes through 'the change' - becomes complete tosh after that point. An interesting idea but ultimately badly written/developed/executed.
